The Folk Museum is a journey through Norwegian history with a lot of historic buildings. You will also experience how people lived in the old days. It can be combined with a visit to the Viking Boat Museum next door.

This is the place to go if you would like to see how norwegians used to live in earlier days in different parts of Norway. You also see both country side and urban places. It is a lot of interactivity with different themes according to time of year.

... Check the program in internet first! If not it might be that almost everything is closed but still you have to pay full entrance fee and feel disappointed! Best on weekend in summer- there many nice old wooden houses and sometimes with entertainment.

Beautifully located on Bygdøy, take the ferry, or bus 30.
The museum consists of many buildings representing different areas of Norway, as well as different time periods. Try to get a guided tour, or decide what to focus on as it is vast. Kids will enjoy Lefsebaking, candle-dipping and horse carrige. Nice museum to visit when weather is ok, as a lot of time can be spent outside. If rain, check out the Folkloric costumes, Bunad.
